    I can just picture the people naming those diseases...

    Well, he`s got a big head, what should we call this one? How about big head disease? Okay sounds good, now lets move on to the guy with the droopy face...

    Ginger: The Author is Asian, so the people are Asian.

    Notice how so few people on Maury with incurable diseases are Asian? Is it because your entire medical system is flawed and you should be drinking green tea instead?

    In other news:

    It`s a good thing they covered his eyes so he can`t be identified...

    Balthazaq is half right... they`re all asian likely because the author is asian and not because their medicine is inferior. However, the poverty in any nation usually yeild higher occurances of certain diseases, and less treatment is available. That goes especially for places like rural Asia and India.

    All of these look really really painful. The eye one... Eeurgh. >.<

    Of course these aren`t the real names of the diseases. The one with the child aging prematurely is commonly referred to as Progeria, and I used to know the name for the one that makes people`s faces look kind of melty, but I`ve forgotten it. Ah well. =/

    "Rough Leg Syndrome"?

    "an age full of colorful life for most of the people"?

    Agreed Bumble.

    Papakilljoy.
    You think because they have wacky game shows they`re contracting incurable diseases?

    Also, I did notice how badly written that was, so here is some handy advice:
    Capitalize your sentences, spell people`s names correctly, it`s "you", not "u", it`s "about", not bout, you missed a comma, and Asia is a proper noun. :P

    Also, maybe don`t criticize people who speak 2 languages for speaking the second poorly, when you fail at the first.

    "Why are all these awful afflictions only found on Chinese people living in remote villages?"

    Because other people have access to medical treatment that would prevent the disease from reaching the point that you see here.

    "Awww these always make me feel sad. Couldn`t someone help these people instead of just taking pictures?"

    No!! Absolutely not... these people are lower than dirt!! FOr instance, that doctor with the patient with the two-toned skin... he only was lifting up her shirt to help the camera man to get a better picture and to also grope the poor woman. He most certainly was not lifting that shirt up to help the camera man to take a picture for any type of medical journal, or for an example to help medical students better diagnose future patients. I am sure he was just there for two seconds to lift that shirt and then he went on his way after kicking that two-toned bitch right out of the hospital.

    Shall I go on to further explain the moronic nature of what you wrote, or was all the sarcasm evidence enough for you?

    Stop complaining about the grammar and language! It is perfectly understandable; if you have trouble reading it - then that is down to your own lack of linguistic ability!.

    "I mean, how many of you could even write a sentence in the author`s first language?!!!"

    True... very true! We would all most likely drat it all up much like this author did. However, allow me to throw a wrench into your spokes - if you don`t mind.

    Heres the wrench: I am willing to bet that absolutely nobody here on IAB has tried to write an article in Chinese or Japanese or Korean, etc. etc. I am sure we all have not for the very same reason that this author SHOULD NOT have written that article. Perhaps we all should write one to teach ourselves a valuable lesson? (something akin to "shame on us for being critical of somebodies grammar on the interwebs!")

    Or perhaps I can just say to hell with you, this dudes` grammar sux ballsors and go on my merry little way. After all, this is the internet.
